The April-May issue of Iceland Review magazine is out. In this diverse issue we traverse the country visiting creative individuals along the way, including a group of international artists who spent 60 short days in the North Iceland town of Ólafsfjörður, and musicians Svavar Pétur Eysteinsson and Berglind Häsler of band Prins Póló, who moved from Reykjavík to a farm in the East Fjords. We also visit the pioneers behind a company producing extra virgin cod liver oil in the West Fjords and the Reykjavík studio of fashion designer Ýr Þrastardóttir, who premiered her new collection of multi-functional clothing at the recent Reykjavík Fashion Festival.
Also in this issue we cover the end of the Holuhraun eruption and what it means for visitors to the country, we discuss the Al-Thani case, for which four Kaupþing Bank bosses were jailed, we take a look at where Reykjavík is headed and how the global refugee crisis is touching Iceland.
In our special promotional supplements, we provide readers with tips for traveling around East Iceland—and other parts of the country. We also provide a guide to investment opportunities in Iceland.
As always, the issue is packed with images by editor and photographer Páll Stefánsson, including from beaches around Iceland. The cover image is from Breiðamerkursandur beach, Southeast Iceland, taken on the morning of the solar eclipse on March 20.
